Joanne is an architect‐urbanist with fifteen years of professional experience in the fields of urban design, urban planning, master planning and architecture. As a registered architect with the NSW Architects Registration Board in Australia, she is also a heritage conservation advocate. After living and working in Australia for many years, Joanne returned to Malaysia in 2015. Upon her return, she joined Think City, a non‐profit organisation focussing on community‐based urban regeneration as a Senior Manager and Team Leader of the Urban Design and Planning Unit to help rejuvenate the cities of Kuala Lumpur and Butterworth. After nearly 4 years of urban regeneration work in Kuala Lumpur, her passion for community empowerment remains unabated. Joanne began volunteering at YWCA (Young Women’s Christian Association) Kuala Lumpur in late 2018, among other community‐based voluntary work. She has recently accepted the offer to join the YWCA KL board as the Vice President and leads the Youth Wing Creative Recreational Program. The program is specifically designed for students of YWCA’s Vocational Training Opportunity Centre, a vocational skills training school for young women from underprivileged communities
